I Didn’t Know they Cared

Last year I made a first time trip to California to see my oldest son graduate from college.  He was 24 at the time

The day before the event, my my husband and I spent some time at my son’s house.  Imagine my surprise when, I found my old letters to him serving as bookmarks in the various books he was reading.

On further inspection, I found that old letters from me were apparently all he used for book marks. 

His response to my inquiry about his practice included a shrug and a mumble about liking to reread the letters.

Even kids in this day and age like the tangibility and the familiar feel of letters.
